Small grass fire extinguished in Dunnigan

By From page A2 | July 13, 2014

A small grass fire near the county’s northern border off Interstate 5 burned approximately 13 acres Friday afternoon, damaging one outbuilding but no homes in the immediate area, the Dunnigan Fire Protection District reported. It was contained about two hours after being reported.

The grass fire was caused by a blown electrical transformer, which sprayed the dry grass with sparks. Five engines and three water tenders fought the fire along Little Buckeye Creek, with aid from Arbuckle City College, Zamora, Williams, Yocha Dehe and the community of Yolo.
